I’ve been going to Dr. Hillman for many years. I also used to see the best (and sweetest) massage therapist in the world, Mary Blue English, who is now their office manager. Because of their care, my back problems improved 99%. Due to family obligations of caring for my ill mom, I got away from going. Wow can I tell a difference! I started back under Dr. Hillman’s care this week and plan to be a regular patient again and get my life back. Their new office is gorgeous and the staff, like Dr. Hillman, are kind and caring.
UltraSlim® FAQ’s offered by Dr. Hillman
What can UltraSlim® do for me?
– Reshape your body
– Slim down targeted areas
– Tighten and tone loose skin
– Reduce stubborn fat from arms, hips, thighs, tummy, love handles, bra line, knees, and ankles
– Reduce the appearance of cellulite
How does it work?
UltraSlim® uses a specific frequency and intensity of red light from medical grade LEDs in a very unique way that causes your DNA to produce a protein that acts as a key to open up tiny windows on the fat cell walls that are normally closed. It does not kill or harm the fat cell in any way. This allows the fat inside the cell to drain out into your lymphatic system. It then goes to your liver where it is broken down and excreted in your stool. This same protein also causes your skin cells to produce more collagen and elastin, which results in smoother, tighter skin, and a reduction of fine wrinkles and stretch marks, ultimately leading to an amazingly younger appearance.
Is it safe?
UltraSlim® is perfectly safe. In over 40 years of red light research there has never been any negative side effects demonstrated. In fact, the more it is studied the more benefits are discovered.
Where does the fat go?
The liberated emulsified fat is then picked up by the lymphatic system and processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The transitory pore in the fat cell will close in about 48-72 hours and the liberated contents will be expelled in the patient’s stool and urine over the next few days.
What can I expect during a session?
While listening to music or reading a book, the UltraSlim® LED panel is aimed at each stubborn fat areas for 8 minutes, and is rotated according to each individuals requests. Based on your specific goals, sessions customarily range from 32 minutes to 1 hour. Once completed, you’re provided a complimentary 10 minute Whole Body Vibration Massage (WBV) which naturally speeds up the metabolism, stimulates lymphatic drainage and enhances waste elimination.
Why is WBV (Whole Body Vibration Massage) important?
Studies have shown a 10 minute workout on a commercial grade WBV is equivalent to a 60 minute workout and ensures the released fatty compounds are eliminated, NOT reabsorbed by the fat cells.
Is UltraSlim® for everyone?
No. UltraSlim® should not be used by pregnant women or individuals with active cancer. When UltraSlim® empties the fat cells, the liver causes fatty acids and triglycerides to be voided from the body. Accordingly, individuals with compromised liver function should not receive UltraSlim®.
What kind of results can I expect?
Based on clinical studies and verifiable results, optimal results take place when UltraSlim® sessions are structured 1 – 2 times a week over a 3 – 6 week period, and when used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle the average inch and weight loss is 8 to 20 inches by the 7th treatment!
At True Health Chiropractic and Massage we carefully assess our client’s needs individually and by providing a customized “Cutting Edge Treatment Plan” our clients literally experience the “WOW Factor” on their very first day of treatment.
Do some people respond better than others?
Yes. Patients with a higher metabolic rate are better able to excrete the fat cell contents and enjoy better results. However, UltraSlim® works for patients of all ages and skin types.
How does it compare to other weight loss therapies?
Clinical studies have shown that it is seven times more effective than the other miracle weight loss light therapies featured recently on Dr. Oz, such as laser therapies (Zerona) or other red light therapies (such as i-Lipo), and it is a fraction of the cost. No diet or exercise program can even begin to compare with UltraSlim®.
Is UltraSlim® painful?
No, in fact is it very relaxing. Many people report that chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and joint problems actually improve after being exposed to the red light.
What about liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is always risky. People die from liposuction, infections are common, and there are always side effects. Many people who get liposuction are still so sore a full month after the surgery that they can barely move, much less go back to work. This is a hidden expense of liposuction that many people didn’t count on. One of the many other problems with liposuction is that it kills the fat cells in the area where it is performed. As we age, almost all of us will gain weight. Since the fat cells were killed by liposuction, your body must store the extra fat in surrounding areas or in the fat cells that were missed during the surgery. This results in very ugly bumps, bulges, and wrinkles that develop after the surgery. Sometimes this starts happening immediately, and sometimes it can take several years.
How does UltraSlim® compare to other non-invasive fat killing procedures such as microwaves, freezing, or ultrasound cavitation?
These procedures all have the same side effects as liposuction. They also can be extremely painful either at the time of the procedure or several days later when injured nerve cell endings begin to regrow again.
UltraSlim® versus Zerona. What is the difference?
The Zerona’s five 7.5 mW laser-emitting diodes are mild compared to more recent technological advances such as the UltraSlim®! Regarding the penetration depth of Zerona versus UltraSlim®’s LEDS, the photographs below clearly demonstrate the significant superiority of UltraSlim® in penetrating skin and fat. UltraSlim® delivers 8 times more photonic energy than Zerona.
How long does it take to get results with UltraSlim®?
You will notice results immediately. If you don’t lose at least 2” of fat in less than an hour during your first treatment, you get your money back! No other weight loss procedure or surgery can dare make you this guarantee! Approximately 75% of UltraSlim® clients lose over 3” (a full dress size) on their very first treatment, and some people even lose 6-8 inches on their first treatment.
I am pregnant and have put on too much weight. Can I do UltraSlim® treatments?
Sorry, but UltraSlim® cannot be done during pregnancy. However, you can receive UltraSlim® treatments as soon as you give birth to shed the unwanted inches and tighten and reduce the stretch marks that pregnancy caused.
Can diabetics do UltraSlim®?
Absolutely! Diabetics get excellent results with UltraSlim®. By losing excess fat, diabetic patients can alleviate many of the common symptoms of diabetes. We specialize in helping diabetic patients. We also offer adjunct therapies and treatments to help diabetics get rid of painful neuropathy, balance their blood glucose levels, and improve their circulation. With the proper care, many diabetic patients are able to get off all of their medications.
In the past when I lost weight I got a lot of unsightly sagging skin as a result. Will UltraSlim® cause the same thing?
No. UltraSlim® actually tightens your skin by creating lots of new collagen and elastin in the skin cells. If you have sagging skin and stretch marks from previous weight loss, UltraSlim® will even help you greatly reduce that.
What kind of benefits does UltraSlim® provide besides dramatic fat reduction?
UltraSlim® reduces fine lines, age spots and wrinkles, provides skin tightening, builds collagen & elasticity, increases blood circulation, enhances the metabolism and reduces the appearance of cellulite, detoxifies and revives the body and DOES NOT harm the fat cells.
How often can UltraSlim® treatments be done?
For best results treatments should be done 1 to 2 times per weeks to allow your liver sufficient time to process out the released fat. If more than 4 inches is lost during any one treatment, allow a week before your next treatment for optimal results.
How long will it last?
As long as you want it too, if you’re willing to maintain a slimmer life style that includes a healthy diet, proper nutrition, lots of water and exercise. Just like anything else, to keep it, you have to maintain it! So keep your caloric intake and portions in check.
How much does it cost?
Individual UltraSlim® treatments cost $500. (This is a fraction of the cost of any other weight loss procedure or technology.) We have multiple treatment programs available at a tremendous discount. Remember, if you don’t lose at least a total of 2″ of fat around your waist, hips, and thighs during your first hour treatment you don’t pay anything. You have nothing to lose, but your excess fat! We do offer CareCredit for financing treatment.
